Steelers, Kevin Colbert Agree to One-Year Contract Extension



The Steelers and vice president and general manager Kevin Colbert have agreed on a one-year contract extension. Colbert’s extension will keep him with the franchise until at least the 2021 NFL Draft.

“I am happy to announce we have extended Kevin Colbert’s contract for an additional year,” Steelers President Art Rooney II to “Kevin continues to play a key role in our success and his dedication to our personnel efforts is unparalleled. We are pleased he will lead those efforts for at least one more year.”

Colbert is entering his 21st year with the Steelers. He joined the franchise in February 2000 as the director of football operations, which is a role he held throughout his first 11 years with the team. The Pittsburgh native is now in his 10th year as the team’s general manager.

Despite missing the playoffs each of the past two seasons, Colbert has been one of the most successful executives during his tenure with the team. The Steelers have won three AFC titles, two Super Bowls, 9 division titles and made the playoffs 12 times with Colbert.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed at this time.
